Love the 'Betty Boop' graphic--much more appropriate than either Humphrey Bogart or Katherine Hepburn....

Thanks Red, my brother JD is an incredible artist and his marketing company Junkyard Dog Productions, in Minneapolis is known for their graphics.  JD is a "Cleo" winner, which is the equivalent of the academy awards for marketing.  He has provided art work for other projects for me.  He rock's!!!!

Taking a break from cutting those horns off that fnnnn buba welded on my CJ back in the day.  If buba was here they'd lock me up for homicide!  One side down, one to go, it's going to be an all day project just to salvage back to the frame round cross member.  Oh well, it will be worth it regards finished product.

Progress today and a little mockup before cutting and welding on the horns before installing on the frame.

Need a bit of help .. hoping I can get the following measurement(s).

Need the measurement from the bottom of the front bumper to the ground/floor on a vehicle using standard size jeep tires and wheels.  Am also looking for the measurement (Center of the bumper) of the face (Front) of the bumper back to the face (Front) of the round cross frame member the 1st one that sits in the frame.  I want to ensure that I have my new horns exactly where they need to sit before welding them into place.

Installing the new horns, gussets, bumper etc as a single assembled unit onto the frame.

Nevermind on the measurement issue figured it out via old diagrams and past posts ...actually it looks like the wild west out there when it comes to any true consistency on setup, frame parts, spacers, gussets. rivets, styles, bolts, etc, etc etc. Comes down to the beholder, and I'm onboard with that.
